Three yachts in Croatian ports have been temporarily banned from use and departure due to reasonable suspicions that the owners are connected to people on the sanctions list for the Russian invasion of Ukraine, reported the Ministry of the Maritime, Transport and Infrastructure on Wednesday.

The yachts are anchored in the Betina marina, the ACI marina in Skradin and in the port of Rijeka. These are restrictive measures adopted by the European Union in response to Russia's military aggression against Ukraine, which include sanctions against certain individuals. Until the revocation of the measures, requiring a decision by the competent authorities, all three yachts must not leave their location until further notice.


When asked by the HINA news agency, the Ministry of the Maritime, Transport and Infrastructure stated that as of today, in accordance with the provisions of the Law on International Restrictive Measures and the Law on Harbor Master's Offices, due to reasonable suspicions about the connection of yacht owners with the invasion of Ukraine, for three vessels located in the Betina marina, ACI marina in Skradin and in the port of Rijeka measures have been issued temporarily banning their use and departure.


The Ministry of the Maritime, Transport and Infrastructure checks all information and carries out necessary activities as a member of the interdepartmental Permanent Group for the Implementation and Monitoring of International Restrictive Measures, in accordance with the International Restrictive Measures Act and other relevant laws.
